Severfield-Reeve increases capacity
Severfield-Reeve Structures has invested in a range of new equipment as part of a refurbishment programme at its North Yorkshire plant.
The equipment includes two machines from FICEP: a high speed 1204 DTT CNC drilling and plasma coping line, and the company’s second FICEP Tipo B25 for punching and plasma cutting large plates.
The investment programme has also seen the fabricator install a close-linked, Kaltenbach circular saw, an HDM1432 and a KDX1215 drilling line, at the plant near Thirsk. This follows the installation earlier this year of Kaltenbach heavy-duty HDM 1432, KC 1201 and KDX 1215 sawing, coping and drilling lines.
Severfield-Reeve Structures’ 50-acre site is the largest steel fabrication facility in the UK, and now has eight production lines with the capacity to process 2,900 tonnes of steel a week.
